Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 44

As Did The Tribe Win Last Night helps fans count down the days until the Indians retake the field in an official Major League game, we look back at some of the players who wore the Cleveland jersey with pride.

Countdown to Opening Day – 44 days

There is something magical about a large number of the Indians players who have worn the number 44 during their Cleveland careers.

Many were well known for having glorious facial hair.

It’s a strange correlation, no doubt about it. Thirty-nine players have worn the number and the most memorable of the bunch can be remembered for the beards and mustaches that they sported on the field. Read More

The Cleveland Indians use six runs over the first three innings pace to roll to a 7-0 win over the Seattle Mariners in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series. The win tied the series at two wins each as the teams trade off wins.

The dangerous Tribe lineup was powered at the top today, as Kenny Lofton started the bottom of the first with a single. Prior to an Omar Vizquel walk, he stole second and moved to third on an errant throw from the catcher. Carlos Baerga knocked in Lofton with a grounder to second before Eddie Murray’s two-run blast off of Andy Benes gave the Indians a 3-0 lead. Read More

Included will be historic game recaps, headlining stories and a ranking of the team’s most influential players that truly made 1995 The Greatest Summer Ever. Today looks back September 18, 1995.

The best performances of the season out of Tony Pena and Ken Hill are going to go completely overlooked, but nobody on Albert Belle’s team is going to gripe about him stealing the spotlight.

Pena may have gone 4-4 with a three run homerun on Monday night while Hill worked his first complete game in over a year, but Belle stole all the headlines by slugging two more homeruns in the Indians 11-1 trouncing of the White Sox at Comisky Park. Read More

The Toronto Blue Jays must be feeling ‘Once Bitten, Twice Shy’, or perhaps they’re just saying, ‘We Gotta Get Out of this Place’.

As rock legends stream into Cleveland for the opening of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum tomorrow night, Indians slugger Albert Belle showed the city of Cleveland that he is still the biggest rock star in town for the second night in a row.

Just as he did ‘Yesterday’, the Indians ‘Super Freak’ of a cleanup hitter hit an extra innings, walk-off homerun to lead the Indians to a 6-4 victory over the Blue Jays on Thursday. The Tribe concluded the series with a four game sweep of the ‘Free Fallin’ Blue Jays and remain the ‘Leader of the Pack’ by a huge margin in the AL Central. Read More

One trend for the 1995 season ended on Friday night, but another one just kept right on going.

Even after Tribe closer Jose Mesa blew his first save of the season after starting out a Major League record 38 for 38, the Indians still were able to defeat the Detroit Tigers 6-5 on some more Jacobs Field magic—this one a walk-off homerun by catcher Sandy Alomar, Jr. in the bottom of the 11th inning.

You know it’s your summer when you don’t play particularly well and you win anyways. Of course, it doesn’t hurt to have a sure-fire, first ballot Hall of Famer in your lineup either.

For the Major League-best 70th time this season, the Indians found a way to take home a victory—this time on a walk-off homerun by the veteran Eddie Murray—as they defeated the Milwaukee Brewers 4-3 on Saturday night at Jacobs Field. Read More

The Greatest Summer Ever: Ken Hill

Throughout the 2015 season, Did the Tribe Win Last Night will take a look back at the 1995 Cleveland Indians for the 20th anniversary of their fourth pennant winning season. Included will be historic game recaps, headlining stories and a ranking of the team’s most influential players that truly made 1995 The Greatest Summer Ever. Today looks back at player #20 Ken Hill.

The core of recent Indians teams have been built off of trades that were made for young talent.  Justin Masterson, Asdrubal Cabrera, Carlos Santana, Grady Sizemore, Shin-Soo Choo, Travis Hafner, Michael Brantley and Chris Perez all came from teams that were looking for the last piece to their puzzles and to help their push to the postseason.  All of these players had very limited or no experience in the Major Leagues before being traded to the Tribe.  If you look over the last 20 years, you will find that the Indians have arguably had as much or more success as any other team when it comes to trading big league talent for young prospects.  On the other hand, when it comes to trading prospects for big league talent mid-season, the Indians hauls over the past 20 years are not as stellar.
